Manic Street Preachers Air Music Video For "Complicated Illusions"

Welsh rock trio Manic Street Preachers have aired the video for their newest single "Complicated Illusions". 

The song is part of our current playlist and is taken from their 14th studio album 'The Ultra Vivid Lament', which came out last month (3rd September) via Columbia/Sony. Grab your copy here.

Complicated Illusions is described by the band as “The battle between chaos and calm with a gliding majestic lyrical flow – leaning towards’ More Than This’ era-Roxy - Bowie’s Lodger - peak pop Echo & the Bunnymen.”

Film maker Kieran described the footage to compliment the song - “I’ve always felt the track feels like an epic soundtrack to an as yet made film so I’ve gone for a visual/lyric type affair using a similar aesthetic / approach to a lot of Netflix type title sequences using minimal / small type over multi-layered imagery.”
